Reliance Jio had promised users to provide lifetime free calls when it launched in September 2016. But due to delay in the implementation of the “Bill and Keep regime” by TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) in 2020, Jio says that it had no option but to charge 6 paise per minute(the IUC Charge set by TRAI) when you make calls to any other Network outside Jio.
The Company Said in a statement that “Honouring its commitment to revert off-net domestic voice-call charges to zero, as soon as IUC Charges are abolished, jio will once again make all off-net domestic voice calls free, starting 1st January 2021.”
Further, Reliance Jio added that “it strives for India to be a free-voice nation, with the majority of smartphone users enjoying free voice calls.”
